Galway Burlesque Festival 2018

 

GALWAY BURLESQUE FESTIVAL 2018

Yes!  I am utterly thrilled to have been selected to perform at this fabulous festival's Gala Night on Saturday 19th May!  Having had a little piece of my heart taken by Ireland at last year's Dublin Burlesque Festival, I was drawn to go back and see more.  What an honour to be amongst such a delicious line-up - weekend away, anyone?

Oh what an audience, Swansea!

 

What a night!  Lilly Laudanum's Bluestocking Lounge in Swansea is a must-see to add to your list.  Well worth the journey, this show is something a little special.  I suspect it's the incredible amount of sparkle that came with Saturday night but that audience was incredible.  A packed house of smiling faces and enthusiasm resonated and we performers basked in it.

THANK YOU to all who attended and made it so magical.  Mr Ozgen was a delight, I was at home with my burly momma Lady Wildflower and my fairy godmother of burlesque, Lilly Laudanum and I caught up with familiar faces Dainty Doreen and Jewel Personality.

I have to say, Swansea, you filled my heart with joy - thank you!

FREAKY FRIDAY FUNDRAISER - 13TH APRIL


Airborne is our burly birthplace and a place of wonderful creative activity of many variations.

On Friday 13th drop your superstitions and pick up a night of strip 'n' tease by joining us there! IF you can't make it, please try to pop a pound or two in the pot on the funding page (HERE)...every little really does help and will keep the showgirls and poledancers going with a proper rehearsal space.

Thank you!


Bluestocking Lounge

Well, it's not long until my next trip into Wales - South Wales this time!

 

Off to perform with my Fairy Godmother of Burlesque, Lilly Laudanum and her Bluestocking Lounge

and she has given me a lovely introduction (click through to read more!)  Not only this but my burly momma Lady Wildflower is one of the headliners!

 

Upcoming ....

 

I have so much coming up that I'm excited to reveal - but not yet!  Timing is everything and producers like to schedule/reveal at specific times so it's rare you can break the news as soon as you're booked!

However, I'm pleased to say I can reveal this show.  Having ticked North Wales off my list twice in the last few months, I am off to South Wales - Swansea to be precise!  Performing with my "burly godmother" Lilly Laudenam.  It's her Bluestocking Lounge in the Swansea Grand Theatre's Arts Wing and I'll be alongside my burly momma Lady Wildflower and joining the master turkish belly dancer Ozgen!  As I know the other performers it will be a little like a reunion trip for me and promises to be a great night.  Join us!

If you book before 3rd March, you'll save £3 on a ticket, too:  CLICK HERE

Sparkling Silver Sweeties

 

Fresh from the fun of the North Wales Burlesque & Cabaret Festival where I was given a Silver Award alongside the lovely Lili del Fflur, my favourite little bear.

Somerset success!

The wonderful Trixie Whipp put on a fabulous festival yet again. Back for the second year, this time to perform Then Came Woman - we had a blast! Well worth the travel. Here's to next year!

Almost time for a road trip!

Off to Wales again

 

The weekend is almost here and I am looking forward to escaping out of Snickers and into Sparkles again!

Spending the weekend at the North Wales Burlesque and Cabaret Festival <3 Performing on Friday night at a beautiful theatre with some rather fabulous little beauts, the hubby and I sharing lodgings with a fellow showgirl and catching up with friends....it's a tough life ;-)

Christmas Wishes!

As I wait to see if I'm on Santa's Naughty or Nice list, I just want to wish you all a VERY Happy Christmas and thank you for all the support you have shown this year both to me and to the art of Burlesque.

Now, who was lucky enough to have bought one of the New Year's Eve tickets at Shangri-la...?

See you there, then.....xx

December madness

Well, we're mid-December and I'm halfway between my last show and my next and not nearly enough done!  Costume repairs and maintenance, rehearsal and creating the next two acts all underway amongst the home re-vamp, the inevitable race to Christmas with all the kids descending on the house and Mr Dare's own gigs.  Oh yes, we do it all together - I've managed Adventures of Salvador for six years now and he is my own personal minder, chauffeur and guide in this burly adventure!

Next up is the New Year's Eve party and I'm performing both The Way I Walk and Then Came Woman - but I can't let you know where yet as my appearance is under wraps for now!  

Feathers fluffed and ready!

 

A lull between shows means time for training and I'm back to my mentor and "burly momma" Lady Wildflower for more fan dancing.  I do have a fan act in the planning but that's a long way down the list - it takes a LOT of practice and I'll need my other wrist sorting first!

...and we're home to more pictures!

Haworth Steampunk Weekend

 

Well, this show sold out a while ago and I am SO pleased we made it!  The weather was against us and some didn't get through - but we still put on a hell of a show and mingling with the audience afterwards was a joy.  I don't think I have ever been asked for so many photographs!  Thank you to ALL involved for making it so enjoyable x

What a WEEKEND!

 

Dublin Burlesque Festival is a must-see for anyone who loves Burlesque!

It was an honour to be part of it - just look at the cast and crew!



I'm on my way!

MANCHESTER - TOMORROW!

I'M BACK IN MANCHESTER - and this time it's NO TICKETS!

 

If you missed me last time, get your beautiful booties down there on Tuesday at Albert's Schloss on Peter Street!

 

However - if you can't stand the heat, you better keep out of this kitchen tomorrow night! Delightfully dark 'n' dirty, if you're up for it join me with some of my favourite performers at Albert's Schloss in Manchester; come have a taste of Kunst Kabaret!

I'll be joining the party with:

Bella Besame
Ava Ahotsa
Duke Wayward
John Celestus
Luna Tik Tok
Suzie Sequin
Titsalina Bumsquash


Then Came Woman

Well this act is getting more and more of an airing and I am really loving the feedback from it!  People are really "getting" the feel - the glamour of old hollywood movies, something perhaps more classic - and with the shows who have booked it, tweaked to edge toward the graceful or grindy depending on need!

We did it! Finalists!

Well what a show that was!  Seren Yn Codi on Saturday night in Conwy brought together several storm-blown showgirls for the semi-final and we had such a good night.  One of the biggest reasons I do this is for the people you meet - and this lot were amongst the most interesting and diverse acts which made for a really great show for the audience too!  Great work by Kimberley Edmunds (Foxy Stole) and Erwyd pulling this all together.

All contestants did well to be selected for the semi-final - it was a great mix of acts!  See the finalists in January at "Theatr Colwyn" !

 Finalists (L to R):  Miss Sugar Bomb, Eddie Kelly, Lili Del Fflur, Vanity Dare, Laurie The Fox

Audience Choice winner also goes through:  Foxy Maraschino
